Well there's a start.
Update:

Sanded & Primed Housings, bowls & shrouds





Drilled holes in the back of the headlight plastic for the Ccfl connectors to go through

Drilled holes for the solonoid wires to go thought

First coat of blue on my gatling gun shrouds


Satin Black painted bowls

Satin Black painted Housings

Both drying for tomorrow we cure!

Soldered the 50w resistors & CCFL'S connectors onto the headlight harness

Both shrouds cured & on the mini h1 projectors

Put housings, bowls & reflectors in oven to cure the paint.


Ccfls silconed to the shrouds

Shrouds & projectors inside the bowls

Silconed ccfls wires & projectors wires so they don't move around in the bowls

Put together except the lenses



Rear of headlights with silconed holes

Whole thing put together and done

Piece of advice SCR3AMz when you add pictures to this thread, edit them in the first post, that way you won't have pictures all over the place and it will be easier to follow for the rest of us.

Also a small description with pictures is nice for newcomers. For instance that glue ball looks like something your cat coughed up to a newbie.
